Toys from the Past

Did you have any of these toys? I like to look back & remember the fun we had as children.
The Indian drum. That was bought in Minnesota so I could pretend to have a pow wow.My dolls, teddy bear & of course, Tinker toys My sister Cathy with her rocking horse. Hang on, he's going too fast!
I loved playing with the dollhouse. All the tiny plastic furniture.
I still have the cradle. My daughter used it for her "babies".

Here we are jammin'.

I love remembering old toys. I have one of my old GI Joe's, and mom just gave me a stuffed monkey I had as a baby, lol.
There is the absouletely coolest store in the world about 45 minutes away from here. (ok mayube second if I count Lehmans lol) It's called Toys Time Forgot, and he deals in old toys from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It always fun to walk around and see things you had. EXCEPT for when you see what some things are worth now! I'm still kicking myself for the GI Joe that met his untimely death in a fire lol he's worth $350 now.

That guy has a website too, might be fun to look around and see things you may have had.

Barb,

The toys brought back a lot of memories. I was crazy for dollhouses! I think my great imagination led me to be in the position I am in today~a homemaker!!

Oh, yes I remember those. Those were the days. What I got the biggest kick out of is the chair in the background!

We played with tinker toys every time we went to my grandmother's house.... but at home it was totally baby dolls or Barbie dolls.
